A face lift is a surgical procedure to improve the visible signs of ageing in the neck and face. This is a highly personalised treatment option which can effectively reduce the appearance of deep creases around the eyes, nose and mouth. It may also be offered to lift areas of the face affected by the loss of muscle tone or fat displacement. By following a healthy lifestyle and using life-long sun protection, you can see the rejuvenating effects of a face lift for years to come.
Joy Odili has 15 years’ experience as a plastic surgeon and has gained experience at some of the UK’s top teaching hospitals. During your initial consultation, she will discuss your expectations and desired outcome for the surgery in detail, as well as any medical factors affecting your suitability for this treatment.
The neck is one of the first places to give away our true age, thanks to a combination of genetics, gravity and environmental factors. A neck lift is actually a set of procedures designed to remove fat and/or excess skin and alter the appearance of your neck muscles to create a leaner, younger looking neck. The exact procedure will depend on your personal circumstances and desired results, all of which Joy Odili will discuss with you at length.
Removal of eyebags
As we age, it is common to develop lower eye bags and hooding of the upper eyelid. These can make your face look tired and older. It is possible to rejuvenate your eyes and overall appearance through the surgical removal of your eye bags. This is accomplished by taking away any surplus skin, fatty tissue or relaxed muscle in the eyelids to tighten your skin. The procedure will firm up your skin and reduce the hooded appearance of your eyes, turning the clock back by years.
As a highly sought after plastic surgeon, Joy Odili offers a competent and professional pair of hands to conduct this procedure. She will spend time with you during your initial consultation to understand your expectations and address any questions you may have about this treatment option.
A brow lift (also known as a ‘forehead lift’) can be an effective way of minimising the appearance of deep creases across your forehead or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose. The surgery significantly reduces frown lines, giving your brow a younger, smoother appearance.
Rhinoplasty (nose re-shaping)
Many people are self-conscious about the appearance of their nose, often due to a hump, the length or width. Rhinoplasty (often known as ‘nose job surgery’) is an effective way of re-shaping the nose to reduce these features and dramatically alter the balance and proportions of the whole face. Nose reshaping can also be an excellent option for the treatment of problems that contribute towards breathing difficulties.
Joy Odili will work closely with you to understand the results you would like to achieve and to manage your expectations so that you are happy with the end result and experience a significant improvement in how you feel about your appearance.
A range of ear reconstruction procedures are offered to correct the appearance of split ear lobes (which usually occur due to regularly wearing heavy earrings) and prominent ears, for example. Joy Odili has extensive experience in this area and will carry out a comprehensive initial consultation to understand your needs and answer any questions you may have.
Breast reduction surgery is often carried out for medical as well as aesthetic reasons. Large, oversized breasts can lead to poor posture, as well as pain and discomfort in the back and neck. Some women also feel embarrassed and self-conscious about their large breasts. This surgery aims to make the breasts more compact and reduce their volume, making them more in proportion with the rest of your body.
As a plastic surgeon, Joy Odili has worked closely with many women requiring breast reduction surgery. She will give you professional and considered advice from your initial consultation onwards, managing every aspect of your treatment and aftercare.
Breast augmentation surgery aims to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast using implants. There are many reasons – cosmetic and medical – why women request this surgery and Joy Odili will carry out a comprehensive initial consultation to understand your reasons and expectations. She will also be pleased to answer your questions throughout every stage of the treatment process.
Breast uplift surgery is often performed on women whose breasts have lost volume and sagged, typically due to dramatic weight loss, age and post-pregnancy. This surgery may be carried out on its own or at the same time as breast augmentation.
Joy Odili is skilled in this type of surgery and will work closely with you to realise your expectations and give you breasts that look younger and make you feel more confident about your appearance.
Abdominoplasty is commonly known as a ‘tummy tuck’ and is designed to remove excess fat and skin from the stomach. It can also be an effective method of restoring weakened or separated stomach muscles to create a smoother, sleeker abdominal profile.
Factors such as pregnancy, prior surgery, ageing, hereditary issues and significant fluctuations in weight can make it difficult, if not impossible, for some people to achieve a flat and well-toned abdomen through healthy diet and exercise. Abdominoplasty offers a highly personalised option for addressing this problem.
As with all surgical procedures, Joy Odili will concentrate on understanding your personal needs and managing your expectations. She will discuss every aspect of this treatment option and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
A body lift typically combines a number of surgical procedures, such as abdominoplasty, a thigh lift and buttock lift. The aim of a body lift is to resculpt the body – generally the abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks - in patients who have lost a large amount of weight and have been left with excess skin as a result.
Joy Odili is a respected member of the medical profession and works extensively to train postgraduate junior doctors and core trainees in plastic surgery. One of her specialisms is post-bariatric surgery. As such, she is a highly sought after surgeon who can be relied upon to advise you openly and honestly throughout every stage of your treatment and provide you with the highest possible standard of care.
A thigh lift (also known as ‘thighplasty’) can significantly reduce excess skin and fat in the thigh and knee area. This procedure is often sought by patients who have achieved a large weight loss and wish to reduce the loose, dimpled skin they have been left with in this area.
Joy Odili is skilled at creating beautifully contoured thighs that are proportionate to the buttocks, abdomen and legs.
Many men and women feel self-conscious about the size and shape of their upper arms which, as we grow older, may lose tone and definition or become more bulky. This problem can be further exacerbated by losing a significant amount of weight as the excess skin may hang down from the upper arm. Arm reduction – usually a combination of an arm lift (brachioplasty) and arm liposuction – can be an effective way of improving the contouring of the upper arm by removing excess fat and skin.
Joy Odili has particular experience in post-bariatric surgery and is a respected member of the medical community.
Many people who have lost a significant amount of weight have layers of excess skin around their backs, which add bulk to their appearance and causes their newly slim body to lose its definition, despite the weight loss.
Joy Odili is skilled in post-bariatric surgery and has achieved excellent results, giving patients a slimmer more defined silhouette by removing the excess skin on their back.
Labial reduction or reshaping is generally advised for women who have enlarged or irregular labia. These women may feel embarrassed or physically uncomfortable and often experience sexual dissatisfaction or difficulty. Other women are simply self-conscious about the size or length of the labia minora (inner lips of the vagina) or may want a noticeable asymmetry corrected.
Joy Odili provides a considerate and professional service and will listen to your individual circumstances, needs and expectations to help you decide whether labial reduction or reshaping might be the best treatment option for you. She will be happy to answer your questions and will provide the highest possible standard of care.
Gynaecomastia is the enlargement of the male breast tissue and is thought to affect up to 40-60% of men to varying degrees. There are a wide range of causes, including hormone changes, obesity, liver disease and hyperthyroidism. In treating Gynaecomastia, it is important to establish the underlying causes.
Gynaecomastia surgery is also often known as male breast reduction surgery and can be an effective option for men who feel self-conscious about their appearance due to the enlargement of the male breast tissue. As a highly sought after plastic surgeon, Joy Odili has carried out Gynaecomastia surgery on a number of male patients and can be relied upon to discuss all of your treatment options fully.
Liposculpture is an alternative, minimally invasive form of liposuction that uses a small suction mechanism to target specific fat deposits under the skin. The procedure aims to contour and define areas of the body rather than completely resculpting them.
Joy Odili offers a number of liposculpture and liposuction treatment options.
Scar revision is surgery that aims to reduce or improve the appearance of scars. It should also restore the function and correct the skin changes left by an injury or previous surgery.
Keloids are abnormal scars that are thicker and of a different colour and texture to the rest of the skin; they typically extend beyond the edges of the wound and may be recurring. Scar revision or keloid revision surgery removes the keloids at the point where they meet your normal tissue.
Joy Odili will carry out a comprehensive initial consultation to understand your medical history and ascertain how the scars came about. She has a great deal of experience in this area and will be happy to answer your questions throughout the treatment process.
